sumatra, it's not going near major population centers. but yeah, if it hit a city, it would be a huge, huge impact. the truth is we have these things fly by us all the time. not this size but the day could come when we could have a visitor. >> what did you say? how long have they been tracking this one for? >> for more than 2 million miles. spotted way off in space out there, and in fact, you will not be able to see it with your naked eye. but if you had a pretty good telescope, you would be able to see a pinpoint of light passing by on february 15th. >> keep it a pinpoint of light, it never needs to get any closer than that. >> astronomer. >> he's just a magician. >> thank you very much. you can always follow what's going on here in "the situation room" on twitter, tweet me @wolfblitzer.

let's get to work. >> here is the main story we are following tonight on cnn, from new york city, across new england, up to ontario, deep snow fall, hurricane force winds now, plenty of cleaning up and digging out. across several states, a half million homes are without power tonight. take a look at this accumulation in wallingford, connecticut. that is 44 inches! the the city of poston saw the snow reach 21 inches deep there. that is where a tragic accident happened. a teenager claimed into this car to get warm. the tail pipe was blocked, in the snow and the boy died in a matter of minutes. >> ems were coming out of the boy, at around this point, i got a look at his face. eyes rolled back in his head. i have seen that look before. >> this is part of the country recovering from hurricane sandy, one of the most devastating storms to hit the east coast. it isn't a new phenomenon, experts say our weather patterns are changing due to global warming. we dispatched a team of team of cnn reporters across the country and around the world to investigate, how bad can these storms become? a

force winds and bearing some cities in more than 2 feet of snow. >>> and the manhunt underway in southern california. police say chris dorner is armed and dangerous. first, though, let's keep you updated on the massive blizzard. you have to look at how big this storm really is. check out the image from space, nasa is the one that provides this to us. the storm looks like a hurricane. and it's packing winds like a hurricane, 65 miles per hour or more in some places. that wind when you combine it with heavy snow is knocking out power. this morning, more than 650,000 homes and businesses across nine states now have no electricity and more than half of those are in massachusetts alone. we now know the storm has claimed at least one person's life. police say someone died in a storm-related crash in poughkeepsie, new york, please be careful if you're out traveling. also the storm has caused more than 1,700 flights to be canceled today. and that number is certainly expected to increase. there will be no flights out of boston's logan until at least sunday. it's a similar story at new
providence, right in front of city hall. there has not been a soul in sight in the last four hours that i have been here. that's how abandoned it is. an emergency vehicle drove up to see if we were doing all right here. i spoke to the governor today. i was with the mayor, i was in the emergency command center tonight, chris. their real concern, they said we know we're going to have power outages. the issue is how many. if the snow doesn't get more dry, if it doesn't get colder, frankly, they're expecting many power outages. they say a prolonged storm is what they fear. not only afterwards do they have the plowing issue. they have the snow removal issue. one thing that makes this very different than 1978, the governor told me that technology today is so much better. i saw the gps they have on their plows now. the technology is so much better that they are able to prepare in advance, get those plows exactly where they need to be, get the cars off the roads in advance, that they're not going to have the same issues. you had 26 deaths here in 1978 during that blizzard. and here you go, anothe
lot. in south boston, but the reality is some 600 plows have been out throughout the city all night trying to battle this blizzard. throughout the state, you've got about 4,000 pieces of equipment, the national guard numbering about 5,000, who are on the standby when the teeth of the storm hits. just about an hour or so from now. we blizzard like conditions, if you look up the street, you can barely see up the street. simply because you have this powdery like snow which is blowing all over the place and making things very difficult. i just want to give you an example of how cold it is here. in between live shots, i run to my truck which is being buried in the snow drift, but my photographing stays out so you can get live bumps, live pictures of what is going on. let me show you, hand that to my producer. this is hard. he's like the tin man out here. it's trying to -- thanks, bob, for doing that for us. bob the photographer, who is now literally frozen stiff. >> wow. >> you can see he's still out here shooting, giving us an idea of how cold it gets out here. >> amazing job that all o
for our own security. we've actually relied in over 275 different cities around the world, where our embassies and consulates are, we rely on host governments, on security forces, on the militaries and police forces in host countries so it's a joint responsibility, and obviously the state department will have to look into this and try to determine who is responsible. >> nicholas burns, former ambassador, thank you so much for joining us this morning. we'll have much more from turkey later on ins in ns s i"cnn news" >>> the colorful mayor of new york city has died, much beloved. his signature line? >> am i doing all right? am i doing okay? >> yeah, we remember that, the 88-year-old koch had been in and out of the hospital recently. he died of congestive heart failure. his funeral will be monday in a synagogue near central park. koch served three terms as mayor starting in 1978. he later found a new rule for his jubilant combative personality on the people's court and hosted a radio show and never left his beloved hometown. let's bring in john berman in new york, so what will be the ma

"outfront," our contributor a writer for "the national review," and former white house press secretary bill burton and co-founders of pry arteries usa, a pro-obama super pack. community activists in chicago have been pleading for years for the president to come home and directly address gun violence. he's gotten a lot of criticism about his lack of talking on this iss
people died. that is more than 50% of the entire total population who died in new york city during hurricane sandy in october. this borough was devastated. staten island is used to being ignored because it's the smallest borough and it is not being ignored anymore. they're doing a great job of clearing this street so looks like they've had about 8 to 10 inches. the winds haven't been that heavy compared to connecticut, massachusetts and rhode island and a lot of people here who were anxious before this are breathing a sigh of relief. right here you can see there were many houses in this block that were destroyed. this was a house when hurricane sandy came through and no longer is. it is rubble. the house right next door was heavily damaged and people have been busily repairing it hoping to move in this week. it looks like they won't be able because they were afraid of the blizzard and hope to move in monday they were telling us. they've had a lot of tough times lately. they're very grateful at this point it doesn't appear the storm is as serious in this particular area as they thou

the city of providence, the state of rhode island is trying to deal with this morning. that is massive power outages, wet, thick snow falling on trees, on power lines. it means about nearly 200,000 homes here in rhode island are without power. that is what they're dealing with at this hour. some good news, some of those bridges out to places like newport, rhode island, have reopened. they closed late last night because of these sustained 58-mile-per-hour wind gusts we were getting. those have reopened. i-95, that huge interstate through massachusetts, connecticut, rhode island still closed, though. roads here in providence closed a's well since 5:00 eastern right now. illegal to be out driving on them. stay home. even though it looks better, stay home. we had a chance last night to hang out with this guy, let's bring him into the picture, colonel pete gaynor, who heads emergency transportation. snow plows, gps tracking their every move. you were up all night. give us a sense of the situation now here in providence and broader rohode island. where does it stand? >> it's been a long nigh

. about a day away from hitting the east coast. we keep talking boston and this could hit new york city. >> providence, hartford, boston up to new hampshire and maine. all of the big cities across the northeast under the gun here. if you are along i-95, it's going to be a line where north of you somewhere it's going to be 20 to 25 inches. south of you it will be two. that's a big range. they will sneak into part of the forecast and not get to the northern part. new york city right now, this computer we are talking about is 15.3 inches of snow. providence is 28.3. the mayor of boston, we showed the picture said please, everybody off the road by noon. city schools are closed. we don't want you stuck on the freeway in a blizzard. this is going happen. people are going to get out with three inches of snow on the ground. they think they will be okay, but they are not. they are going to get stuck in this. three inches now, but two hours later, the be inig inches and not going to be able to get out of the car. this happens all the time. get off the road and stay home. >> here's a heads up. i h
on the streets, you see cabs. not so much right now, huh? >> new york city, right? the city that never sleeps. this is a city that is in the middle of a deep slumber. when was the last time you saw the streets practically empty. look at the circle, columbus circle, practically empty. a couple cabs, maybe a snow plow if you're lucky, maybe a city bus. empty. it's like a white christmas today. isn't it? a winter wonderland. it is cold, i'll tell you that, but it's snowing and it's a quiet snow. not much wind going on. so really kind of a calm overhang on this evening in the middle of the night. the snow, though, is continuing to pile up. what i find interesting, though, is i really haven't seen many snow plows go by and the city has promised they were on patrol as of 7:00 tonight. perhaps they're in the boroughs in the neighborhoods making their way through. one interesting difference to this year, though, different from the blizzard that hit here in 2010, the city's kind of learned about it, learned from its mistakes, they have got kind of, brooke, a gps tracker of where the snow plows are. so
providence, rhode island. rare that you see a car going by. almost every business, city hall, everything is closed here, just like in massachusetts, the governor in connecticut also having that 4:00 ban on any cars and i wouldn't be surprised if it happens here very soon as well. i want to take you on our journey getting here. we just arrived here. it took us over five hours to get here from new york city, a trip that really shouldn't take any more than three hours. along the way, very slow going, light traffic. lots of snow plows but also some very serious accidents. we saw a jackknifed tractor-trailer that ran right into the median. we saw a huge semi that just fell off the side of the highway. we took a picture of that for you guys. that was consistent all the way up here. if you head up to maine, i want to show you some pretty dramatic video in maine. a 19-car pileup in maine. bottom line, the governor saying not a time for sightseeing, not a time for playing around. this is very, very serious. in 1978, 27 inches of snow, 26 deaths. they think this storm could be as bad or worse and

new york city. not a hurricane, but we will have hurricane winds with this coming up, brooke. >> i'm coming back to you. we'll talk about the dense northeast, tens of millions of people, many of whom lived through sandy. first, the good news. skiers who planned trips right before the valentine's day weekend here, those folks, you called it right. as we look at these pictures from maine, do keep in mind those winds are going to whip. and before this thing is over, you will have zero visibility, snow blowing sideways, deep, deep drifts, that sort of thing. want to talk about boston. look at this. this is -- you can't see it, it is fenway park. you'll recognize fenway if there wasn't snow and ice on the lens of this camera. snow started there right around 9:30 this morning. and we're hearing boston could break its all time snow record. the all time record set in either 1978 in that deadly winter storm, blamed for dozens of deaths, or more recently in 2003. take your pick. 27 inches each time. boston, right now, is under a snow emergency. no on street parking. schools are closed. publi

of the snow is east of new york city. everywhere you see pink through here, that's a foot of snow or more, and the purple is 20 to 30 inches of snow. that's from portland, maine, to boston, to providence, that's still to come. you already have 6 on the ground. there's plus 20. that's still a good snowfall. albany, you'll see about 6 to 10 more. down toward new york city, it appears you're almost in this dry area where there will be 8 to your north, 4 to your south, but not a lot more to come still in the city compares to what is on long island, over a foot still to come here. and this is the danger zone, just snowing everywhere out here. it's coming down in buckets because at the low comes through here, its closest position is going to be to boston, not new york city. that's why snow is not going to be as heavy in the city as in boston because the low is much closer there. then by tomorrow afternoon, literally, this thing is gone. saturday, 4:00, 5:00, the snow is completely over. only the wind is left. erin. >> what's the bottom line? there have been competing models. someone said the eu

close, the president's strategy is to go directly to the american people. you can't go to the city of chicago, even though you want to talk about opportunities, social programs, mental health services, increase in the minimum wage and all of the rest, you can't go to a place like chicago and not talk about gun violence. so what he's trying to do, i think, is say, look, this is not a rural issue versus an urban issue. this is an american issue. it's just one more way that -- he understands what the political odds are in congress for a ban on assault weapons. he gets that. but this is just one way for him to make the case to the american people to pressure members of congress and lots of them, by the way, as you know are democrats who are in districts where it might not be so popular. >> or states. >> or states. pressure members of congress with him at least in part of his gun proposals. >> dan lothian is also taking a look at this. this has been a manl juror problem in the city of chicago. president obama's hometown. here's dan with more on that. >> reporter: jim, the president is a

you think the city's response has been so far to the blizzard? >> it's been great. they have given us a lot of notice and the signs on the highways and the emergencies on the internet and other signs across the city. it's been -- they have prepared us well. >> i know you guys also stocked up on supplies. earlier, some of the supermarkets in the city were running out of milk, running out of bread. i think you have plenty of other types of supplies to keep you busy. >> we might have other supplies to keep us busy, but we are also, you know, do have supplies and water and things like that. but you know, we are trying to realize that we will be here for the weekend and trying to make sure we have everything that will keep us sustainable through that time period. >> they were telling me earlier, anderson, they hadn't seen snow like this in a few years? >> long time. >> a few years, gut obviously, we still have a lot more to go before the night is over. >> jason, we'll be checking with you. we'll be on the air for two hours and more coverage after that, so all night long. a short drive down
